big developments to report on the civil war just across israel's northern border in syria. rebel there is today reportedly captured a major military base, as well as all of the weapons inside it. tanks, armored vehicle, cannons, on and on. and what we're told are truck loads of munitions. this could be a game changer. it's picture of an antigovernment fighter standing atop a captured tan. the rebels laid siege for to that base for two months. rebel commanders say the victory over the government will give them a major boost and could be a tactical turning point in a civil war that has raged since early 2011. there was heavy fighting reported in the capital city of damascus. more than 40,000 people have died in the syrian civil war. >>> the f.b.i. now reports four men in california are under arrest now charged with conspiring to kill americans. and one of the suspects reportedly once served in the united states air force. but will this f.b.i. operation hold up in court? a live report is next. plus another record day on wall street, except today it's for what could be the largest in
